A short comment about Crete island and its history! Minoan Era-Europe’s oldest civilization among the centuries.
Crete was the centre of Europe’s most ancient civilization ; the Minoan, often referred to as the ‘cradle’ of European civilization. Little is known about the rise of ancient Cretan society, as very limited written records remain, and many are written in the undeciphered script known as Linear A. This contrasts with the superb palaces, houses, roads, paintings and sculptures that do remain. Though early Cretan history is replete with legends such as those of King Minos; Theseus and the Minotaur; and Daedalus and Icarus passed on via Greek historians and poets such as Homer, it is known that the first human settlement in Crete, dating to the aceramic Neolithic, introduced cattle, sheep, goats, pigs, and dogs, as well as domesticated cereals and legumes.

Minoan civilization and “first games”, the Tavrokatharpsia, for many historicals is the base of Olympic spirit and games, the God Dias (Zeus) was born on mounatin Idi-Ideon Andron cave in Lassithi Plateau.
As you read, visiting Crete is a vacation which combines the phusical beauties of our beaches and the Great history of the ancient times, an Era that set the base for Greek generations to succeed in scientism over the centruries.
